Manteca Unified had no staff members testing positive for COVID-19 at the end of April.

That marks the first time that has happened since the district started posting a dashboard in December of the number of staff and adults that test positive at a particular point in time each week as well as what school they are connected with.

There were 11 students. All but three were at Weston Ranch, East Union, Lathrop, or Manteca high schools.  There were two at George McParland School and one at Stella Brockman School.

All students in Manteca Unified except for roughly 1,200 enrolled in the online academy have been back in the classrooms for four full days a week since mid-April.

That means the 11 COVID cases were among 25,000 students and adults that attend classes in-person. It translates into less than 0.05 percent currently being positive for COVID.

There were 47 patients in hospitals countywide as of Tuesday due to COVID. There are four apiece at Doctors Hospital and Kaiser Manteca.  Of those three are in ICU.

Countywide ICUs have 97 patients making ICU capacity at 98 percent. Only 12 are COVID patients.

There are currently 1,235 active cases in San Joaquin County. Testing positive does not mean a person is or will become ill.

There have been 72,724 COVID cases since March 2000 out of a county population of 767,000. The number of deaths is now at 1,382.

As of Tuesday, 32.76 percent or 184,344 of the targeted population countywide has been vaccinated, Another 81,113 or 14.41 percent are partially vaccinated.
